Anydvd us having problem backing up Havoc 2. What is the problem and can it be fixed?
What problem(s) are you having?
Not unless you provide more information.
Answer questions 8, 9, and especially 10 please from this link: click http://forum.slysoft.com/showthread.php?t=321
This is the second post now on Havoc 2.
But if this is a disc that AnyDVD 22.214.171.124 cannot backup, we'll never know unless someone tries it and answers questions 8, 9, and 10 from http://forum.slysoft.com/showthread.php?t=321.
Havoc 2 initially wreaked havoc with my DVD drive - Windows Explorer and other apps including AnyDVD would not even see a DVD in the drive it says it's empty. Rebooted multiple times, nada.
After I upgraded to the latest, AnyDVD and Shrink worked OK.
Stay away from this malicious DVD it installs something on your hard drive !
Anydvd 126.96.36.199 handles this disc perfectly fine (provided Anydvd ripper or Clonedvd is used).
Always always disable autorun for your CD/DVD drives! Anyone who doesn't is just looking for trouble.
Yes, this movie has the X-Protect copy protection on it and also has the InterActual player on the disc along with all the other garbage they put on these discs.
The ******** still have the gall to put the DVD logo on this disc when it is not a disc that follows the DVD specifications.
Havoc 2 backed up fine with 188.8.131.52 but not with 184.108.40.206

All the more reason to update to AnyDVD 220.127.116.11. None of the newer X-Protect titles will work with the older versions nor will other updated protections (ie RipGuard, Arccos, etc) as they use them.
While some titles are not handled well, at the moment, I'm sure James will resolve the problems soon. Nonetheless, the amount of problematic discs is relatively minimal and many of the discs reported as problematic have turned out to actually not be a problem with AnyDVD 18.104.22.168 at all. Normal Adolescent Behavior: Havoc 2, The Hoax, The Invisible and Transformers are just a few examples of the supposedly problematic discs that turned out to be flawed discs or other non-AnyDVD related problems.
I'm running on 22.214.171.124 and I had an issue with Havoc 2 and with Full of it. Both movies backed up fine, but about halfway through the disk... the AUDIO starts to get off... badly... delayed by 5 or 10 seconds.
I thought it was a problem that was caused during the transfer... but watching the vid on my laptop... it squeezed like that.
You need to use Anydvd ripper when you use Shrink (and possibly other third party programs).
Someone politely asked me to test this disc with DVD Shrink. Stuttering began in Chapter 4 and was also in Chapter 5. I stopped checking at that point because any further testing was pointless. Simply put the backup was a failure.
I'd say from here on out that any new releases with X-Protect should be considered off-limits when using DVD Shrink. Nero Recode simply won't import the disc, period. Unless the disc is first ripped with the AnyDVD ripper or CloneDVD stay away from using both programs on the original disc. Unless something is changed with AnyDVD this will remain to be true. Unfortunately, with how messed up the X-Protect protection is I don't know if DVD Shrink or Nero Recode will ever be useable when ripping straight from the disc. Only James can figure that one out and if it's possible I'm sure he'll be the one to accomplish it.
In short, if you are an AnyDVD user and you are dealing with a disc containing the X-Protect protection then only* use CloneDVD or the AnyDVD ripper to initially rip the disc to your HDD. You can do whatever editing you wish with the files on your HDD using whatever program you wish.
*There may be other programs that work alongside AnyDVD for ripping these discs w/o problems but I don't use them so I also don't know which ones do and do not work.
Edit: These results do not come as a shock.
turning off autorun WIN XP
search for gpedit
it will be the bottom one found in system 32
double click on it
go to administrative templates
go to system
you will find it on the right
turn off auto play
click on it and set it up
Webslinger is absolutely on the money, AnyDvd and CloneDvd made a perfect copy. AnyDvd and 1 Click Pro made a mess of the movie. Another decrypter (third party) and Nero Recode also did a good job, only problem I had to make an extact copy not "movie" only.
Stick with AnyDvd and CloneDvd
Disable Cprx in 1-click if you use Anydvd
Thanks for the tip, it worked fine this time. Should it always be disabled or just this movie?
If you're using Anydvd, keep Cprx disabled.
